whiskey pom

we are in the heart of fall these days, and i am loving it!  ignoring all the rain we've had the past two days, the weather has been just beautiful.  sunny, crisp, windy...and wonderful.  my favourite time of year.  

while apple is a normal fall staple in this house, i thought i would shake things up a bit and try incorporating pomegranates into the season.  

this has been the household favourite after-dinner drink for the past few weeks.  it's fresh and fall and not-too-sweet but not-too-sour.  i used bourbon whiskey for this recipe, but any whiskey or rum would work just as well.
